We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Awesome Media & Entertainment to co-develop the successful book property ‘Stomp School’.
Written by award-winning author and writer-producer Jeff Norton and illustrated by Leo Antolini it’s a colourful, energetic, riot of a book starring Rikki, a little kaiju who just loves to build things. Kaiju is a Japanese word that has come to mean “giant monster”. Inspired by the universal themes of creativity and destruction, Stomp School is about having fun and being yourself; it takes the conceit of the city-stomping kaiju monster and flips the expectations on its head.
Jeff Norton says: “I’m thrilled that Stomp School has found a nurturing home in Cloth Cat Animation, a creatively-driven company that will bring this eccentric cast of characters to life.”
Jon Rennie, Managing Director of Cloth Cat Animation adds: “We’re delighted to work with Jeff to develop Stomp School as an animated series. The book immediately caught our imaginations when Jeff first pitched it to us and we know it will make for a fun, energetic series for both kids and their parents, who have themselves grown up with kaiju stories!”
Adam Bailey, Head of Animation Development at Cloth Cat Animation says: “When I first saw the book, I found it instantly relatable to my own kids and how they like to build and destroy! We see so much potential in the colourful and modern style of the illustrations, which builds on the high quality work that Cloth Cat has developed a reputation for.”
